AS NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS ,WE DID NOT KNOW ANY LAWYERS IN THE GAINESVILLE AREA . BASED UPON A RECOMMENDATION , WE HIRED CRAIG TO HANDLE A MATTER FOR MY SON WHO WAS AN OUT OF STATE STUDENT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. AT ALL TIMES HE WAS EXTREMETLY KNOWLEGABLE , PROFESSIONAL , COMPASSIONATE AND INFORMATIVE . HE OBTAINED AN EXCELLENT RESULT FOR MY SON. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE SEEKING AN ATTORNEY IN GAINESVILLE TO CONSULT WITH CRAIG FIRST AS HE WILL EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS.

Several months ago, I was going through the hardest time in my life and was involved in a very complicated case in Gainesville that not only involved a legal case, but also involved a UF conduct hearing. Since I am not originally from Gainesville, Mr. Dethomasis was highly recommended to me by a longtime judge from South Florida that grew up in Gainesville. Once I spoke to Mr. Dethomasis on the phone and met with him at his office, I instantly felt better about my situation and knew that he was the right man for the job. He would regularly update me on what was going on in my case and was always quick to answer any questions my family and I ever had no matter how busy he was. Since my situation involved a legal case and a UF conduct hearing, we were basically dealing with two separate cases at once. I felt confident that Mr. Dethomasis was by my side every step of the way and we ultimately got the most favorable outcome possible for my legal case and UF conduct hearing. Mr. Dethomasis has been defending clients in Gainesville since the 1980s and is highly respected in the Gainesville legal community by judges, attorneys, and UF administrators alike for his skill, experience, and integrity. The impeccable reputation he has with other members of the legal community speaks volumes about the type of attorney Mr. Dethomasis is. I would recommend Craig Dethomasis, without hesitation, to anyone that encounters any legal issues in Gainesville, Florida.

I have been practicing law for 36 years, I am an AV rated attorney and I give Mr. Dethomasis the highest of ratings. We retained the services of Mr. Dethomasis for a family member. It was a very difficult time in our lives. I was so impressed by Mr. Dethomasis's knowledge, experience, kindness, compassion, work ethic and professionalism. He is a credit to our profession. I will always be grateful for his outstanding legal work, his incredible knowledge, and his wonderful kind personality. He is true legal scholar, a true gentleman and and an outstanding human being.

Both my wife and I are lawyers, however, we had an issue that arose that was not in our area of expertise. We were referred to Mr Dethomasis for our issue. He was very prompt and courteous and was always available to answer our questions or concerns. Moreover, he handled everything very adroitly and we got an excellent resolution to the problem. I have never taken the time to write one of these reviews before, but compelled to do so in this case because of his excellent work. I recommend him highly! (By the way, we do not know him in any other capacity other than professionally; we live in Tampa!)

During one of the hardest times in my life Mr. DeThomasis was there to help me. While he is a little pricey (I'm a law student), he was exceptional and it was worth every penny. The key is that he is well respected by everyone in Gainesville including the prosecutor's office. This was extremely important in my case as he was able to get the State not to file any charges against me. Mr. DeThomasis truly had my best interest at heart when making decisions and was extremely hesitant to make any of the quick emotional decisions that I wanted to make which ended up benefiting me. He is so good. One of our professors carries his business card in her wallet in case she were to ever get in trouble (AND she was a former prosecutor). Mr. DeThomasis is a fantastic lawyer.

Craig DeThomasis is everything a good lawyer should be. He is professional, well-trained, experienced, courteous, prompt, and eminently qualified in the practice of legal defense. His courtroom presence is effective, authoritative and convincing. He gets the job done and gets it done well.
I had occasion to enlist Mr. DeThomasis' services on behalf of my son when my son became involved in an alleged cyberstalking matter with a woman he formerly knew. The matter was really more of a misunderstanding than any malevolent action on the part of my son, but when the woman filed for a restraining order I knew my son would be best served by hiring a good lawyer to represent him in this matter.
When I searched the Internet looking for an attorney who could do a good job of handling this type of case, I quickly found Mr. DeThomasis' name coming up again and again on legal websites as a both highly qualified and effective defense attorney.
Then, after meeting with Mr. DeThomasis in person to review my son's case, it became quickly obvious to my son and to me that Mr. DeThomasis was the man for the job, and I quickly retained him to represent my son.
During Mr. DeThomasis' service in my son's case he proposed and followed a very effective defense strategy, and he eventually obtained an outcome in court for my son that was very agreeable and acceptable to my son and to me. During his service, I also especially noticed that he treated my son's case not just as another job, but I could sense that he genuinely cared about my son's situation, and was very determined to give him the very best legal defense that he possibly could, and this he did very successfully.
The experience that my son and I had with Mr. DeThomasis' defense of my son's case was entirely satisfying, and showed us an excellent example of how a highly qualified and capable defense attorney gets the job done. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. DeThomasis to anyone in need of a good, talented and effective defense attorney.

Craig is the most professional and courteous person you will ever come across. While he was not defending me personally he was defending someone in the family and it affected everyone involved. Craig was available anytime we had a question, needed guidance, or just needed to talk. He never hesitated to take the case even though it would be challenging and would take up almost 2 years of his time. Craig gave selflessly to the cause and when the verdict sounded as Not Guilty we gathered in jubilee, as two long years came to a close and a family was able to mend its pieces. Craig will never give up no matter what the future looks like, and he is always in your corner. His mannerism in the courtroom surpass any TV show you have or will ever watch. His staff is always friendly and willing to assist in anyway possible, and even his family is giving of their time with him to ensure that he offers the best service available. I will continue to recommend Craig to everyone I see, even if they don't need legal help now, if they do they will know who to call.

I had a great experience with Craig as my lawyer. He came highly recommended from a friend of mine who is a lawyer and I can say that he actually outperformed my expectations. He was very friendly on the telephone, listened to my situation attentively, and told me of the most likely outcomes. He told me what the best case scenario would be as well as the worst case scenario. He communicated with me extremely well, always kept me updated on the case, and answered my questions promptly. I live in another state so all of my correspondence with Craig was over the phone or email. He handled everything without my presence in town. In the end, he delivered the most favorable outcome for my case. I highly recommend Craig.
